In twenty-one days, Italy has seen change its political system. Silvio Berlusconi, after 17 years of government, is forced to resign by international economy.
There are days when the national media overwhelmed the citizens of numbers, graphs and languages unknown to most. But the people have the perception that the set of data unintelligible, radically affect on their daily lives, on their freedom of movement.
The actors of this story lose their shape and are replaced by the spectrum curves of the respective voices. The graphs thus generated are similar to those of marketplace whose laws are apparently different from the biological laws, but they really are derived from human impulses such as fear or elation.
The cash of a small shop in the suburbs becomes the simulacrum of an economy that does not exist anymore while the money disappears in the slow performance of a stock index.
